Subject: scratches and use of hair dryer

I am a new owner of a 12 year old Friesian who apparently has Scratches. I have shaved the back of his pasterns in an attempt to get control of it, and use Microtek shampoo and spray in that area after hosing down his legs following a workout. Also powdered the long hair to try to keep it dry. It has helped a little, but I was thinking about using a hair dryer to actually dry that area. We live in Louisiana, which is a very humid climate. My horse really freaked out when I aimed the hair dryer at his legs, even though he was initially calm when I turned on the sound. Any helpful hints concerning getting him used to this. The air here is almost never dry!
